This is the 2015 Edition of Rudel's acclaimed Queen's Pawn Game work, with over 50 pages of cutting edge material. It boasts a completely new tack against the Slav and addressed an annoying drawing line from the Reversed Queen's Indian. This 2015 edition still includes the revolutionary Phoenix Attack for the Colle-Zukertort proper, first introduced with extensive commentary by Rudel in 2011. This attack promises to be the future mainline for the Colle-Zukertort (a.k.a. The Rubinstein Attack).

For decades, the chess world has run down the reputation of the C-Z as an unassuming opening, claiming it did not exact the full measure of pain from Black in the quest to equalize. If such is the case, why do strong players (as Black) avoid the Zukertort? Instead they opt to play any of several pet defenses rather than deal with the constriction and onslaught of the main line. In Zuke 'Em: The Colle-System Revolutionzed, Rudel explains the basics of the Zukertort and then provided plenty of new ideas to address these various pet defenses that cowardly opponents may choose.

In this book you will also find:

1.Introductory chapters for those who would not know the Zukertort from a Lemon Torte. 2.Analysis in real English from the perspective of someone who has played the opening exclusively for over a decade.

3.A barrage of never-before-published answers and extensive commentary on common lines.

4.A training section to help you retain and test your understanding of the opening.

From the Publisher:

Over a dozen titled players have commented favorably on Zuke 'Em, here is a sample of some of their thoughts.

David Rudel has done a thorough evaluation/analysis of the Zukertort -- Life National Master Mick Bighamian, Owner of Los Angeles Chess Club

Very impressed by the sheer amount of effort and brain power. -- GM Aaron Summerscale, author of A Killer Chess Opening Repertoire

Terrific book for learning a new opening - Life National Master Lawrence S. Tamarkin

David Rudel has put together the definite word on the Zukertort Colle. This is a refreshing writing style with new ideas which should be helpful for the master to beginner player. David used to show his ideas. I recommend this book to all players who want to put bite back in their game!!!! -- National Master Michael Stewart

A good value for players looking for a solid but dynamic white repertoire with serious "attack the King" aspirations. I really like the fact that Mr. Rudel takes an extremely close look at all the key move orders and tries to extract the maximum from each different setup that Black chooses. And, best of all, it's completely playable even if your opponent prepares his head off. Ideal for players in the 1200 to 1900 range. -- International Master Jeremy Silman

David Rudel has done a thorough evaluation/analysis of the Zukertort -- Life National Master Mick Bighamian, Owner of Los Angeles Chess Club

David Rudel has put together the definite word on the Zukertort Colle. This is a refreshing writing style with new ideas which should be helpful for the master to beginner player. What I liked about the book was the complete master game examples David used to show his ideas. I recommend this book to all players who want to put bite back in their game!!!! -- National Master Michael Stewart

I decided to play the Colle-Zukertort system as White and have been playing it almost exclusively ever since. This opening system has enabled me to play quite a few exciting kingside attacks. But of course, any chess opening is far from simple and your opponents usually have plenty opportunities to steer the game in other directions. And with good chances to storm the black castle, quite a few of my opponents stubbornly refused to play into my favorite Zukertort main line, choosing "anti" Colle setups instead. Unfortunately, the Colle-Zukertort is rarely played at the grandmaster-level and thus receives little attention, frequently leaving the fans of this system on their own to find good moves. But this has changed now. With Zuke 'Em-The Colle Zukertort Revolutionized, David Rudel published a nice book on this opening system. David Rudel is proposing several highly interesting alternatives for White in these cases. While GMs certainly have superior analysis skills, they do not necessarily explain their thoughts on a level accessible to amateurs. I played through several of the annotated games in this book and read most of the analysis. While reading, I often asked myself questions like "why can't I play Ne5 right now?" Quite often, David Rudel literally asks this questions himself in the book and provides an explanation. In conclusion, I really enjoyed reading this book and will definitely integrate some of the suggestions in my opening repertoire. -- SquirrelChess.com

I really like the fact that Mr. Rudel takes an extremely close look at all the key move orders and tries to extract the maximum from each different setup that Black chooses...

A good value for players looking for a solid but dynamic white repertoire with serious "attack the King" aspirations...

And, best of all, it's completely playable even if your opponent prepares his head off...

Ideal for players in the 1200 to 1900 range. -- International Master Jeremy Silman

It's an innovative and very interesting book. First and foremost, it is written in a way that those of us who have not yet acquired an international title can readily understand. -- Greg's Chess Progress

Very impressed by the sheer amount of effort and brain power. -- GM Aaron Summerscale, author of A Killer Chess Opening Repertoire

Very impressed by the sheer amount of effort and brain power. -- International Grandmaster Aaron Summerscale, author of A Killer Chess Opening Repertoire

Zuke 'Em: The Colle-Zukertort Revolutionised is a book with many virtues: it is lucid and rigorous and interactive and authoritative and engaging. --The Compulsive Reader [http://www.compulsivereader.com/html/index.php?name=News&file=article&sid=2089]
